My 3-month-old has been spitting up a lot: Advice?

Hey mamas, has anyone ever had a problem with their little ones spitting up so much all of a sudden? My baby girl is three months old tomorrow, and she is formula fed (I tried breastfeeding but had to stop due to certain reasons ), but starting the end of November, she just keeps spitting up so much and so often. I don’t know if that indicates her getting sick or just something that she does. She is acting normal and not fussing more than usual. Some tips on what I can do to help her not sit up so much would be appreciated.

Try a little cereal in bottle with formula. You will have to cut tip of nipple be careful not very much it should help

Yeah my last kid was a puker/spit up the dr suggested the thick formula from Similac I forget which one it was and that helped.

Switch formula… Similac is a great option…

My son projectiles puked we found out he was allergic to several different formulas. Had to have dr look at him finally found a formula that worked. It was outrageously expensive. Good luck. Think of going to pediatric dr for sake of your child’s health

Change her formula. Theres a carnation brand I used for my son. Was easier on his tummy…no problems after he started on that brand.

I would set up drs appointment make sure she isn’t loosing weight! Tell dr what’s happening it can be several reasons formula is too heavy for her digestive system I think giving her cereal now is too soon! My son was profusely spitting up and loosing weight here he had a x ray and it showed a closure of a stomach valve which I had to take him to children’s hospital and they reopened it and problem was solved he had no fever no other symptoms but was loosing weight!

Maybe she is having an intolerance to milk, try her with soy for babies and make sure she burps before settling her down .

Sounds like the formula is not agreeing with her

You may want to talk with the pediatrician about this could be a underlined issue. That should be your first thing. It’s great your trying to reach out to other moms about it but this isn’t the place to get the Info since every child is different !

Talk to the pediatrician. When my daughter was little, she did that a lot, called doc, recommended a different formula, tried it and it went fine. But yeah, ask pediatrician.

She could have acid reflux. Talk to your dr asap so they can get her tested.

Probably allergic to baby formula products.My son (49 now ) was he spit everything up.He would suck his bottle and then. throw the whole thing up.and come up smiling.He was on every formula even. On pro so be( soy formula)Finally I said to heck with it and gave him a bottle of pasteurized milk.Well…never had a problem again.Worth a try !!!

My youngest was the same way but I changed to similac sensitive and it helped. He still spit up but not as bad. I would ask your pediatrician first tho.

Are you burping while feeding? Like feed an ounce and burp. Feed them burp. Also keep baby upright while feeding and 20 minutes after feeding. If it still happens ask your doctor. You might have to change formula.

If your child is getting sick too much or unexplainable, you should be consulting a physician, not a web page.
